HTC U12 will likely feature a Snapdragon 845 SoC, dual cameras and up to 256 GB of storage; could arrive in April

With last year's HTC U11 being close to a year old now, the Taiwanese smartphone maker could soon come up with its successor — the U 12.

New information in the form of leaks has found a device codenamed 'Imagine' which in all likelihood could be the HTC U12.

According to a report by Android Police, ROM developer LlabTooFeR who has been a credible source of HTC-related leaks in the past has now tweeted out a long list of the HTC U12's expected specifications.

Now, the HTC U12 is said to be HTC's new flagship so we can expect top of the line specifications from the phone.

As far as the display is concerned, it is expected to feature a 5.99-inch QHD+ unit with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Nothing too overboard here as 2018 flagships are expected to feature comparable displays.

Moving on to internals, the HTC U12 will reportedly come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with a healthy 6 GB of RAM and a massive 256 GB of internal storage.

On the camera end, the U12 is expected to feature a dual-lens camera setup with the primary lens being a 16 MP sensor and a secondary 12 MP sensor. The front camera is expected to an 8 MP shooter. As for aperture and sensor details are concerned, we will have to wait.


Powering the HTC U12 is a 3,420 mAh battery and the phone is also supposed to be IP68 water and dust resistant. On the software side, the phone will likely come with Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box with Sense 10. We also get Edge Sense 2.0 and HTC Face Unlock.

Now, HTC has not announced anything about a probable release date for the phone but LlabTooFeR does seem confident about an April release. Pricing, however, is yet to be unveiled.
